Meghan Markle's new womenswear collection: Here's everything you need to know

Meghan Markle Just Revealed the Perfect £20 Work Dress From M&S

Duchess Meghan launches capsule collection for Smart Works charity

Meghan Markle's hotly-anticipated charity capsule collection has dropped online.

In a statement released today, Meghan, 38, championed her own charity commitments as she spoke of how work with grass-root level groups has been a focus of her work as a royal.

Also in the collection - but immediately sold out - is a classic leather tote bag from John Lewis & Partners retailing for just under $135.

The timeless series of outfits - known as a capsule collection - that can be worn in the workplace have been created in aid of Smart Works, a charity which provides training and interview clothes to unemployed women in need, and has Meghan as its royal patron. Meghan is quoted under the product description for each product: "Not a handout, a hand held" - HRH The Duchess of Sussex, Patron of Smart Works. Others capture the models showcasing the pieces, which include a blazer, trousers, white shirt, dress and a tote bag.

The Smart Set will be available in stores, online and in Smart Works Dressing Rooms across the United Kingdom from Thursday 12 September.

The Duchess of Sussex told how it has been "deeply important" to work with local communities and organisations since moving to the United Kingdom as she prepares to launch her charity clothing collection this afternoon.

"Taking the idea further, numerous brands agreed to use the one-for-one model: for each item purchased by a customer, one is donated to the charity", she wrote. "Not only does this allow us to be a part of each other's story, it reminds us we are in it together".

The dress has been described as a staple in your autumn wardrobe and a flawless choice for all year round.

The other retailers involved in the project include Jigsaw and Meghan's friend Misha Nonoo, who will also be selling her pieces at her NY pop-up store. Made from subtly grained, soft-to-touch leather, the bag is a "lightweight, versatile and practical, weekday accessory for the modern woman".

It has been described as a generously sized bag created to fit whatever you need to get through your working day. Functional as well as stylish, the bag features three internal pockets and a credit card slot.

You can now join the waitlist by adding your email address and be notified when the bag is restocked.
